Starting life as a V6MRSSB with a Sunburst finish, the body has been sprayed with a white acrylic undercoat, then professionally aged to reveal areas of the original Sunburst and natural wood on the body front and back. The neck itself is a thing of beauty, sleek, fast and carefully aged, and for that unmistakable killer look, along with the headstock and classic cigarette burn, is given a cellulose amber coating.
The vintage charm is enhanced further with pickup covers and controls aged to off-white, while both the scratchplate and the rear vibrato plate have been sprayed with shoreline gold cellulose lacquer and aged to give a brass effect finish.
The Vintage V6 ProShop Unique ~ Olympic White Gold is another hand created one-off, ultra-realistic, heavily distressed guitar from the Vintage ProShop Team.
Vintage ProShop Set-Up includes:
- Fret-level, crown and polish.
- Fingerboard dress and comfort treatment.
- Truss rod adjustment and set.
- Action height, radius, intonation and pickup height adjustment.
- Nut slot regulation.
